Game Of Thrones Actor On How The Show Created A Problem For His Career


Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon has recently shared how the popular show has created a problem for his career. Known for his portrayal of the sadistic Ramsay Bolton, Rheon has been typecast as psychopaths due to his role on the HBO fantasy series. 

Reflecting on the impact of Game of Thrones on his career, Rheon acknowledged the immense opportunities the show has provided him. However, he also revealed the limitations it has brought. 

After Ramsay's demise in Game of Thrones in 2016, Rheon took on the role of Adolf Hitler in the BBC comedy series Urban Myths. This performance further contributed to his association with psychopathic characters.



Game of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martin's book series, depicts the power struggle between noble families in the fictional world of Westeros. The show aired from 2011 to 2019, captivating audiences worldwide. Winning a total of 38 Primetime Emmy Awards, the series has become a cultural phenomenon.

Despite the challenges Rheon has faced post-Game of Thrones, he remains determined to break free from the psychopath stereotype. With upcoming projects that showcase his versatility and range, Rheon hopes to prove to casting directors and audiences alike that he is more than just Ramsay Bolton. As fans eagerly await his future roles, Rheon's journey towards finding diverse characters continues.
